e-spool® shore power - the slip ring-free cable guidance system

No slip ring ... low-maintenance ... inspection-friendly

The shore power e-spool® is a motorised cable reel for winding 1-4 cables that are suitable for use in high-voltage or low- voltage shore power connections.  The rotary movement of the e-spool is achieved with a twisterchain module instead of using a slip ring to allow a continuous cable run throughout the system. This module will accommodate up to 10 turns of the cable reel while allowing the single-core cables (power, control, fibre optic) to run uninterrupted from the cabinet to a certified junction box inside the e-spool.
The system is preferably installed in a container to withstand demanding weather conditions and vibrations.
